About Steven Weaver

Steven Weaver, an engineer by day, novelist by night, spends most of his waking hours writing. Shifting from design, protocols, and boring equipment procedures to exciting adventures and new experiences his imagination invents for his characters, all the while wishing it were he himself, lost on the journey between pages. 


He was born and raised in a small town in Idaho and parts of Oregon. Steven grew up living with his mother and sister through middle school and high school, separated from his three other siblings. They didn’t have a lot of money growing up and books were his only escape. This is the reason he focuses his fiction writing on children and young adult (YA) genres. If even only one child or teen experiencing loneliness can find escape in his stories, if you ask Steven, he’ll say he was successful. 


Steven has always had a passion for storytelling, but as with anything, school, work, and family took precedence over writing and his pen ran out of ink. That was until, 2011 when he decided to start writing again, completing his first novel. The Vault, A Journey of Discovery was the result, and in 2013 became available for the masses. He never planned to stop there. 


His second story, Neola, a young adult adventure novel is just one more in the many he plans to share. Steven incorporates his upbringing by a strong single mother, his engineering and scientific experience, and his passion for history into his character’s experiences with never before seen technologies and adventures.

Eleven-year-old Daniel, dealing with the recent move to a new town and school, feels alone and out of place. With the arrival of summer break, Daniel’s discovery of an underground chamber and a locked vault send him on a whirlwind of a summer break that will change his life forever. In an effort to unlock the vault and discover what is in it, Daniel takes on a fact-finding quest to discover the builder of the vault and what he was hiding. 


With the help of Emily, his neighbor and newfound friend, Daniel discovers that they are not the only one trying to find out what may be hidden on this old farm. With only a bread crumb of information found, Daniel is led on a trek through time. He then discovers that a secretive old man was found dead in the very house he now lives in, with no clues as to why he died. As the danger increases, so does Daniel’s determination to find the truth. What he discovers leads him to a decision between having the life he always dreamed of for him and his family and doing the right thing.

The Vault - Review

What a wonderful journey !

The Vault, A Journey of Discovery takes you on! The book itself is a rather easy read, and although the target age for the story is for a younger audience, I was riveted and intrigued thoroughly and I truly enjoyed the book. Steven Weaver is a wonderful storyteller. This is a novel you should pick up when you just want to shut off your brain for a little while and escape reality and get back to that feeling of being a child again. Ideally, it should be read while curled up in your most comfortable outfit eating your favorite snack with the lights dimmed, and television and phone turned off. You will truly enjoy the escape and feel like you're in the story with Daniel and Emily. There are so many twists and surprises, the story will captivate you until the very end. This is a must read book for children of all ages and more importantly...the children at heart!

The Vault - Review

Surprising little gem of a book!

I have to say that this book really dazzles and delights. It is written with a younger audience in mind, but I found the story to ebb and flow in such a way that kept me fully captivated. While reading this book, I was not only transported by the author's words to another time in my mind, but also a bit in spirit. It is reminiscent of many beloved books I got lost in as a child. The story contains quite a few "good messages" and the historical parts are very interesting and thought provoking. It could definitely open up some great dialogue between you and your child. The ending is very gratifying and doesn't feel rushed or grandiose as others geared for the same age similarly do. I highly recommend this most satisfying piece of escapism...for anyone!

Hooked by the first page!

I was hooked from the first page! This book was not only exciting, but was also very interesting and kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved it from cover to cover. The historical virtue aspect of the book is great not only for teens, but for all readers as WW2 has affected so many people and will for years to come!!! Thank you Steven... I can't wait to read the next adventure that is in store for Daniel and hopefully Emily!!!
